David McCauley exhibition to benefit Spaulding Rehabilitation

June 21, 2019

Lanoue Gallery is pleased to present Write Your Own Story, a collection of text-based works by Miami based artist David McCauley. 

McCauley’s text works are often pared down to a short phrase or just a single word in an effort to find a universal truth or idea that resonates with us all regardless of our background, gender, race, finances, or health.   The materials and words are thoughtfully chosen to spark engagement with the viewer.  But the artist has left the compositions and text equally and deliberately spare to allow room for the viewer to write their own story with each piece. 

McCauley’s desire to write his own story has played a significant role in helping him move forward after a traumatic injury, which is part of his desire to help others do the same.  Over a decade ago, McCauley dove into a friend’s swimming pool head first and suffered a C6 spinal cord injury that left him permanently paralyzed from the chest down.   During the grueling months of rehabilitation that followed, McCauley was introduced to the gift of art therapy which can provide a range of immeasurable lifelong benefits.

Jeremy Holmes "A Ribbon of Flight and Grace"

May 30, 2019 - Cate Mcquaid for The Boston Globe

Jeremy Holmes spent 2 1/2 days earlier this month unspooling a coil of hardwood to fill the size of a gallery. It arcs down from the ceiling, ricochets off the walls, scoops up off the floor, and dances in great loops about the room.

You may ask: A coil of hardwood? Indeed. Holmes works with hardwood veneer — cherry, in the case of his exuberant installation at Lanoue Gallery. He soaks the thin planks in water to soften them up. The artist bends the sodden planks and clamps them until the moisture seeps out and the wood holds its form.

Watching the War for His Native Syria, Artist Mohamad Hafez Sculpts Models of a Ravaged Homeland

April 27, 2017 - Greg Cook WBUR

The Syrian-born, New Haven-based artist and architect Mohamad Hafez says he was in Italy in 2014, picking out marble for a Houston construction project, when he got a call. His brother-in-law, a Syrian architect, was in a refugee camp in Sweden.

“It turned out he had ridden one of those dinky boats across the Mediterranean,” the 32-year-old says. “Things had gotten really bad back home. Life had hit a dead end. In order to seek a better life for himself, my sister and his family back home, he decided to ride the Mediterranean.”
